First Impressions Review: AVEENO Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream
I was so jazzed when I got picked to test The AVEENO Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream because I love face creams and AVEENO is an awesome brand.
From the box it says...Brighten tired and dull-looking skin with Positively Radiant. Positively Radiant is a collection of facial skincare products uniquely formulated to target all 5 Factors of Radiance to leave your skin looking fresh,awake,and luminous. Intensive Night Cream improves: tone,dullness,brown spots,texture and blotchiness.
I received this on 4/12/13, so I got it yesterday. When I saw the little Influenster box in my mailbox I did a little happy dance...that I immediately regretted because I hurt my back. First thing I did was instagram the box because I wanted everyone to see it right away. The packaging looks very nice, I think it looks quite elegant.
The second thing I did was open the jar and sniff because I am sensitive to smells because of my asthma. Holy cow does it smell amazing. It's not to strong or too light, just the perfect amount of fragrance for a face cream. It smells so clean and fresh.
I was so antsy all day yesterday in anticipation of getting to use the product that at 11 on the dot I took a before picture then rushed into the bathroom for my nightly routine.
A tip I would recommend is using a gentle exfoliating scrub before using the night cream to get rid of dead skin so the AVEENO can soak in properly. Always use your night cream on a clean face.
After I used my warming exfoliating scrub I slathered the AVEENO on my face and neck, and I mean slathered like butter on a turkey. After a moment it started to burn/tingle a little. It didn't hurt but it wasn't entirely pleasant either. I figured I exfoliated a little too hard so I wiped the product off and occupied myself for a little bit before trying again.
I wiped my face again to make sure it was clean and then applied the night cream. Once again it burned/tingled a bit so I just figured it was because of the ingredients working but since my skin is so sensitive the feeling was a little more intense than a normal person might feel.
When I woke up this morning I was going to take a picture right away before my shower but I had those lines you get from sleeping on your hands so I had to wait a bit. But as soon as those lines faded I could tell my skin already looked better! A little tingle is definitely worth these results, especially if after one day it already looks that good.
So my first impression about AVEENO Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream is that I am in love with it and definitely can't wait to see how it improves my skin with continued use. I highly recommend this if you need to improve tone,dullness,brown spots,texture, or blotchiness in your face.
I hope I didn't ramble too much. Keep watch on my Youtube channel here to see a video of me using my AVEENO.
Have a good day everybody!
